    Midi confusion

    Hi! I have no experience with midi controllers and I am a little confused by previous posts on the subject. I’d like a simple solution to switch scences and presets while keeping my FM3 on the desk. What would you recommend?

You can also use a Shortboard MkII if you'd like. It's fairly straightforward to put together with minimal parts and based off of prior Vlotech /...

    FC units: General purpose midi.

    When the time comes, I’m looking to control external midi gear as well as the AFX3. On the FC unit, can some of the switches on the ‘layout’ or preset be configured as general purpose midi - with other switches on said layout communicating with the AFX3?

    I should do an expensive search but does anyone have recommendations to add another midi controller in front of an AXE II to control the actual settings for blocks, let's say modulation depth values or feedback for a delay, gain for overdrives and so on. The MFC is nifty but I would miss the...
